Books Acquired Recently: Poetry Edition

Harjo, Joy. When the Light of the World Was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through: A Norton Anthology of Native Nations Poetry. New York: W.W. Norton, 2020.

I read a review of this recent anthology in the April issue of Poetry and decided to acquire it right away.

Orr, Gregory. Poetry as Survival. Athens: University of Georgia Press, 2002.

I just received this book as a belated birthday gift. I’ve been thinking about the societal role of poetry specifically and literature in general a lot during the pandemic, and the book looks like it will be excellent accompaniment for these thoughts.
